Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

P1756 sets when the transmission governor pressure is not equal to it's target at 15-20 psi. This can be caused by a few things. If line pressure is low it will cause governor pressure to be low, there could be a problem in the valve body, or with the electronic governor.

These have a governor pressure solenoid and a governor pressure transducer mounted to the the right side of the valve body. These do give some problems on these and are very likely what is causing your problem. The only way to know for sure is to drive the truck with a scan tool on it and a pressure gauge on the governor pressure test port to monitor the actual pressure compared to what the engine controller is seeing. If that isn't an option, replacing the governor solenoid and transducer has a good chance of fixing the problem.
